Morgan Sindall wins Glasgow regeneration job

Sighthill

Morgan Sindall has won a contract worth £36.5M for major infrastructure works as part of a £250M regeneration of the Sighthill area of Glasgow.

The contract is for roads, earthworks, utilities, drainage, landscaping and public realm, and was awarded by Glasgow City Council’s executive committee.

Work will start next month and is expected to be completed in early 2019.

The council said 64 firms expressed an interest in the job and the final tender consisted of five.

The Sighthill project aims to create a new neighbourhood with 800 homes, a school, footbridge across the M8 and a road bridge.

“It is great to see the regeneration of Sighthill – the biggest such project in the UK outside of London – progressing so well. Shortly after the turn of the decade, we will see the completion of all of this work, with fantastic new homes and a new school campus set in a ‘green’ environment, featuring new bridges connecting the community to the city centre and surrounding neighbourhoods,” said Glasgow City Council leader, councillor Frank McAveety.

“I look forward to the next stage of the transformation of this area being delivered through this contract. The regeneration will unlock the potential of Sighthill as it becomes an eco-friendly neighbourhood, one that is effectively on the doorstep of Glasgow city centre.”

The next Sighthill contract is set to be awarded in early 2017 for the construction of a new road bridge across the Glasgow to Edinburgh Railway, and connecting roads.
